I live in Mangere
I dont know anything about rabbits.
I dont have a fire arms licence.
What should I do to stop buying meat?
Ask a few farmers if they need any rabbit pest control done. They are usually only too happy to have someone take care of there pests for free.
Get a firearms licence and a 22 or just get a decent air rifle and spotlight, some snares, traps, etc to catch them with.
Check out youtube for skinning and gutting techinques.
